BuildBackBetter.gov - such diversity of racial makeup & talent in a government administration!

As someone said, Dems have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to talented people.

Biden will be POTUS in 26 days, Kamala will be the FIRST WOMAN & FIRST WOMAN OF COLOR VeeP, and we'll have an amazing group of people to properly run the government.

Alot to be thankful for so Merry Christmas everyone!

WaPo: Trump raises more than $150 million appealing to false election claims


President Trumpís political operation has raised more than $150 million since Election Day, using a blizzard of misleading appeals about the election to shatter fundraising records set during the campaign, according to people with knowledge of the contributions. The influx of political donations is one reason Trump and some allies are inclined to continue a legal onslaught and public affairs blitz focused on baseless claims of election fraud, even as their attempts have repeatedly failed in court and as key states continue to certify wins for President-elect Joe Biden.

Much of the money raised since the election is likely to go into an account for the president to use on political activities after he leaves office, while some of the contributions will go toward whatís left of the legal fight. The donations are purportedly being solicited for the Official Election Defense Fund, which is blazed in all red across the Trump campaignís website, with an ominous picture of the president outside the White House.

There is no such account, however. The fundraising requests are being made by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee that raises money for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee. As of Nov. 18, that committee also shares its funds with Save America, a new leadership PAC that Trump set up in early November and which he can use to fund his post-presidency activities.

The contributions, from thousands of grass-roots donors across the country, are split into several accounts, including the leadership PAC that is loosely regulated and could be used to personally benefit the president after he leaves the White House.
According to the fine print in the latest fundraising appeals, 75 percent of each contribution to the joint fundraising committee would first go toward the Save America leadership PAC and the rest would be shared with the party committee, to help with the partyís operating expenses. This effectively means that the vast majority of low-dollar donations under the current agreement would go toward financing the presidentís new leadership PAC, instead of efforts to support the party or to finance voting lawsuits.
